Shadows seep into me,
Your breath claws my skin,
Wear down your knuckles,
Patience growing thin,

Your wrath holds me down,
Breathe till the noose tightens,
Under this black water
The dark ice cold frightens,

Surrounded by the world
But still I stand alone,
Hold on till my hands break
Then whisper my last moan,

Slip from my body,
Sink deep in this sea,
Freedom at last,
Free to be me.
Inspired by a book I read based on a girl who was severely abused by her father, and who eventually became a victim of ******
